Uncle8888 was busy looking out for stalls that have queue and see what are they selling at food centre; and suddenly he heard someone calling out loud his IC Name. Walau! Nowadays; he often hears people calling him Uncle, Jacob or Uncle Jacob; but calling by IC name is getting uncommon. Uncle8888 has even changed his Whatapps profile to replace his previous working name. He went over to chat with his two ex-ex-ex colleagues who are about his same age group in their 60s. Later; he came to know both of them have been retrenched as their department was outsourced. It was their last week with the company! No wonder, it was already 1.43 pm and they were still at food court lim kopi and chatting. What is the moral of story? You can love your job; but your company doesn't. Get it?
I am 61 yrs old uncle living in HDB heartland who has achieved financial independence @ 56 and retired @ 60 from full-time job as employee.
Single household income since 1995 with three children. Eldest son and daughter are now working and youngest son still in his 2nd year uni in SUTD.
I have been doing long-term investing and short-term trading in Singapore stock market only since Jan 2000 so I am that Panda or Koala in the investment world; but I am still surviving well in the wild.
I am now executing my Three Taps solution model to maintain sustainable retirement income for life till 2038.
